Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My dad is an English major, and, consequently, I've developed a habit for correcting people's grammar. Whenever I read a story with spelling errors and grammar mistakes, it makes me cringe because all I can do to help them correct the mistake is leave a review. Let's be honest: Who likes getting reviews with negative things? So, instead of just leaving reviews, I've decided to be pro-active and help readers who struggle with writing mistakes.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm great with homonyms and homophones, and have an extremely advanced vocabulary. My vocabulary helps me to find better alternatives than repeating the same word over and over again, to make the writing more interesting. I can translate text into basic Norwegian, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese (Simplified, Pinyin), and am an overall language enthusiast. I'll genuinely enjoy correcting your work.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not good at pop cultural references, so spelling slang terms is not my forte. I speak Midwestern American English, so if your English has different spellings, or grammatical colloquialisms that the dialect I understand lacks, I might not understand it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories in fandoms that I understand, which are listed on my profile page, and like anything that's not incredibly mary-sue-like, or done to death. I'm okay with reading slash, so long as it's in character, and am not bothered by LGBTQAI themes in writing.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like erotica. I absolutely refuse to read/write it. The idea just grosses me out, frankly. I don't like harem stories either, because it's too hard to keep track of who is dating whom.

Also, I don't want to beta any stories for the Supernatural fandom that occur after season seven. Sorry: I'm playing catch up and don't like spoilers.
